The beginning of our free coding bootcamp will provide you with the foundations of the HTML language. You’ll learn how to create, organise and structure the content of web pages. And you’ll do this by becoming familiar and experimenting with the surprisingly small number of elements needed to express your ideas in the online world.

Add Style With CSS

This module of our coding challenge will provide you with the foundations CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). CSS is used to define your web pages’ styles, including the design, layout, and display variations.
